'Substantial Matters: Life and Science of Parkinson's' Podcast Now Available Online


MIAMI and NEW YORKAug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Parkinson's Foundation today announced its launch of a podcast series, "Substantial Matters: Life and Science of Parkinson's," available for listeners to stream online or download. Hosted by Dan Keller, Ph.D., a new 15-minute episode airs every other week featuring interviews with Parkinson's experts.

"As part of the Parkinson's Foundation's mission to ensure that all people living with Parkinson's obtain the care and support they need, the new podcast highlights the latest research and findings while providing practical advice from Parkinson's experts to help people with Parkinson's live better lives today," Keller said.
The podcast, designed for easy, on-the-go listening, provides information for people living with the disease, their caregivers and families, health care professionals, and anyone interested in learning more about the disease. All episodes are archived on www.parkinson.org/podcast
Upcoming episodes will focus on a range of Parkinson's topics including: mental health, genetics, driving, marriage, and family relationships. The first five episodes feature the following topics and experts:
  • "Early Warning Signs of Parkinson's," with Michael S. Okun, M.D., medical director of the Parkinson's Foundation

"In order to ensure the best quality of life, each patient needs uniquely customized strategies for short- and for the long-term treatment and care, as well as how they learn about their disease and learn to live with it."
Other Parkinson's Foundation resources include a Helpline where specialists provide information about PD and emotional support as well as referrals to health professionals and community resources; an educational book series that includes more than 10 titles that range from introductory information to in-depth material on specific symptoms and their management; and the Aware in Care kit, which contains all the tools and information to help people with Parkinson's get the best possible care in the hospital.

About Parkinson's Disease
Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects nearly one million people in the US and over 10 million worldwide. Parkinson's is the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer's and is the 14th leading cause of death in the US. It is associated with a loss of motor control (e.g., shaking or tremor at rest and lack of facial expression) as well as non-motor symptoms (e.g., depression and anxiety). Although promising research is being conducted, there is currently no cure for Parkinson's disease.
